I had high hopes for this recipe - we love Indian food and this read as though it would have an authentic flavor. I followed the recipe exactly as written - it was bland and boring. No requests for seconds even. I would not make this again. Read More

This is a very good recipe. I used coconut oil instead of ghee and started with a base of real Curry leaves and mustard seeds, sauteing them with the onions. Everything else I followed to a tee except I left out the heavy cream. my father-in-law is South Indian and loved the recipe as well. you could easily make this a vegetarian dish by leaving out the chicken or adding tofu. Leftovers are even better as the flavors have a chance to meld together. This is a keeper and I will definitely make it again. Read More

Made as described, except I skipped the heavy cream. You really don’t need it. It is savory and delicious as is, and still plenty rich with the cream of coconut. Truly a winner! Read More

This is a FABULOUS recipe. I’d give it ten stars if I could. The combination of spices is perfection. One reviewer mentioned that this was bland...??? Not possible...look at the amount of spices used! They must have used old spices. My family (grandkids included) LOVE this recipe. Everyone asked for a copy. I’m so glad I tried this...it’s become a family favorite. I don’t care for peas, so I substituted green beans. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly, including the cream at the end. YUM! Read More
